Have Kawasaki taken the three wheeler concept to the next level?

Kawasaki are attempting to pave the way with a new three wheeler concept bike. The firm claims this is the future, but have we seen it all before?

In 2013 the Japanese firm unveiled the J Concept at the Toyko Motor Show, where Kawasaki President Shigehiko Kiyama spoke about the concept and said it 'explores the attractive possibility of an adaptable transport platform that is fun, easy and convenient'.


The video released on Kawasaki USA's YouTube page last week echoes similar advances: "The future, to us, isn't constrained by today's limitations. It is set free by our imaginations."

Last year Yamaha released their three wheeler, the Niken, which MCN will be test riding this year, so keep an eye out, the Niken became the first three-wheeled production bike and was by far one of the most dramatic bikes to be revealed at the lastest TMS.

However the concept above includes new features, seemingly offering a bit more than the MT-09 based platform from Yamaha, including a head-up display, an upright and attack mode.

Would you buy a three-wheeled motorbike?
